She’s the PR powerhouse who is a mother to two adorable youngsters, Pixie, seven, and Hunter, four.
And now, Roxy Jacenko, 38, has revealed the heartbreaking reason she can’t have any more children.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Friday, the entrepreneur said her bout with breast cancer in 2016, has meant that it is very unlikely she would be able to add to her brood.

‘It’s funny how everyone asks me about more children’: PR queen Roxy Jacenko (pictured), 38, has revealed the heartbreaking reason she can’t have any more children
‘It’s funny how everyone always asks me about more children – I think they forget that after having cancer, more children are not a possibility,’ she said.
Roxy, who regularly uses the cancer prevention drug Tamoxifen, said that the medicine can take a toll on one’s body.
‘Radiation and living on the drug does terrible things to one’s system,’ Roxy revealed.

The Sweaty Betty PR founder, who is known to have a close relationship with her two children, added that she’s grateful to have them in her life.
‘I have two incredible children already,’ she said.
Roxy went on to say that she would have limited options should she want to pursue having children.

‘The only option for me would be surrogacy following my cancer and current treatment.’
Roxy shares her two children with businessman husband, Oliver Curtis.
Roxy hit in a bump in the road in July 2016 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, mere weeks after Oliver was jailed for conspiracy to commit insider trading.
Roxy underwent radiation treatment for six weeks, documenting the surgery to remove the cancer from her breast in a 60 Minutes interview in August.
In November of the same year, Roxy revealed to The Daily Telegraph that she would be on a chemotherapy pill for the next decade.
‘I did a test in the US which gives you a percentage of the cancer coming back and it was a bit higher than the oncologist would have liked,’ Roxy said.

‘I have a 10 to 15 per cent chance of it coming back,’ she added.
Reflecting on her diagnosis, Roxy said her daughter Pixie, then five, ‘slept in my bed holding my hand’ after the devastating news.
Roxy had a second breast cancer scare in 2017.
Earlier this month, Roxy told Daily Mail Australia that her trials and tribulations have made her stronger.

‘Life’s good. I couldn’t ask for better,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
‘When anyone would say to you, “What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger”, I used to say, “Would you just shut the f**k up? Seriously?”‘
‘But the reality is, it is true. We learnt a lot about life during that time. It was a very testing and very challenging time.’
